Enchanted Evening

By Alberto Vargas
About the image
This striking image was first circulated as a gatefold in Esquire magazine. The image later appeared on posters and in promotional campaigns for the sale of US War Bonds during World War II.

Modeled by his lovely wife Anna Mae, this strawberry blonde's violet colored eyes and flowing negligee inspired our troops during the war while reminding Americans back home of the need for patriotic support. Even today, she invites us into her private setting where her open arms and coy smile play with our sensibilities.
Collectors notes

This image was printed on a patented archival paper called Opalesque which has a surface that emulated the look and feel of silk.
